11-11-11 at 11.11


Today is a day where we honor all those who have fought for freedom and to protect the lives of everyone around. Today also marks the official day of Carnival season. It has this bitter taste to it though...for me that is. I am not in Europe celebrating this special day, nor will I be around in February when everything goes crazy during our awesome fifth season. And, our fun season will always mark a very confusing and dark time in my family's life as well. It'll be our season, and our thing, but it will always also remind us that we lost someone dear to us. 



And, today...I wonder how many babies are welcomes into our world. To me 11-11-11 is a magical number...very special, and very positive. It's my friends' lucky number and let's hope it's a lucky number for all of us. We all need luck in our lives, don't we? And even to you out there, maybe sitting on your bed or sofa, reading this very line and being all cynical...you also need a lucky day, and luck in life...even if you don't believe in this and don't think it matters. It always does. Sometimes, life will teach you this very lesson and luck will be on your side and you will remind yourself that yes, you had read this somewhere that luck needs to be in every person's life...and then you'll find yourself smiling, and thinking back at your cynical, dark days where nothing seemed right and everything was taken for granted.

My uncle's baby was due on November 9th and we were hoping she'd be late and come on the 11th. BUT she got here early and is now two weeks old! lol
